Podcaster Reggie “Combat Jack” Ossé was uncharacteristically silent on the microphone Monday.
Ossé announced via Twitter that he was recently diagnosed with colon cancer.
“Internets, what’s up? It’s your man Combat Jack. In 7 years of podcasting, I’ve never missed an episode. I got hit with some real life [expletive]. I was recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer,” the 48-year-old said in a statement.

“I was rushed to the hospital, had some pretty severe surgery,” he continued. “I’m on the mend right now. I’m about to jump on this journey to health with chemo and alternative medicine.”
Despite the medical diagnosis, Ossé assured fans that cancer isn’t going to slow him down or “The Combat Jack Show.”
“Take care of your health,” he told his fans. “Your boy aint going nowhere though. We’re going to keep doing this. Keep rocking’ with us.”
Fans and friends sent well-wishes to the former hip-hop attorney.
Sending positive vibes your way. 💯
